The Good things I can say would be that yes it is close to all kinds of food places, it was quiet, the staff was helpfull, the beds were comfortble. Now for the bad things, first it smells terrible in the hall ways, No elevator, the breakfast is a joke (bagels, toast, cornflakes,fruitloops,pastries, coffee, apple juice, and orange drink not juice) some mornings they did not have enough food to go around. The pool area would be nice if they would clean it up. The pool was full of dirt on the bottom,the chairs are just cheap plasic that are filty and cracked. The carpets in this place were so dirty that you can never walk around with nothing on your feet. We had 3 cockroaches in our bathroom. The rooms need new paint, just behind the place is an alley way that I had seen crack heads hanging out smoking their crack pipes all day and night. Good luck if you stay here. They seem to be making improvements but Im not sure how good they can get it.

The best thing about them is their location. Besides being a neat cozy and clean hotel, the location makes this place a heaven. A lot of food joints are available in the vicinity along with a mall. Busch gardens and Adventure Islands are also too close from the place.
